    What system menu your on after you mod doesn't matter as long as your on 4.1U or higher.

    If you are 4.1 or lower, or 4.3 you should go to 4.2. That is a must for hacking the wii to play backup games

    It might be hard to play backup games while on 4.3U

    you can do anything on 4.3 as you can do on 4.2 if you already have HBC 1.0.8 don't worry about downgrading

    ...my thoughts exactly... why go through the headache to downgrade from 4.3 to 4.2 when 4.3 is the same as 4.2? All 4.3 does when upgrading from a previous SM is install stubs to thwart homebrew... you can easily use ATD or MMM to delete these stubs o.o

    Stay on 4.3 mate, just follow the sticky at the top "Modify any wii 4.3 and below" or whatever it is called. You are gonna need a copy of SSBB, Lego Indiana Jones, or Yugioh 5D's to softmod from 4.3. Follow that guide to the letter! I suggest reading through it a few times just to familiarize yourself with it.

    Actually, 4.1 is the latest version you would need to update to in order to gain any functionality from lower versions. And there's no reason to downgrade anymore.

    You have NO idea what you are talking about. I understand if anyone is LOWER than 4.1, they should upgrade to 4.1 but that is NOT neccesary for hacking the wii to play backups. Its only for the sdcard thingy in the main menu and maybe other features but after 4.1 those are all anti-piracy versions that will install nothing good.
    Anyway, don't downgrade it will spare you bricked wii's , not saying that you will brick it since there are lots of guides out there but don't take the risk and don't mess with a working system.
